Cranked out 200 Lyman 311041 bullets day before yesterday. Weight sorted them this eve. Weight range from 176.2-176.4 comprised 160, with 138 falling into the .2 and .3 notch. Pigs are gonna hate me. grin


I am..........disturbed.

Good days indeed. What sort of fusil will launch them?

The Sneezer more than likely, but the .30-30 keeps whispering about them as well.

I gotta sit down and cast a pile of .32-40 bullets today or tomorrow. 195 grain Hudson-style for an ASSRA match this weekend. (I may even break out a new cartridge case for the event. The old one has had around 400 shots to its name. My goodness a case lasts a long time when breech seating and not resizing.)

One of these days I need to warm up a new Saeco mold and turn out some 245grs for a 35 Remington. Using 38.0grs of imr4320 to scoot them along. Haven't clocked them yet but it's a thumper load

Well, I finished off another 100 this AM. Only have ~700 for the Sneezer, not counting the 200 that are loaded. Time for some splat practice. 🤪

Common knowledge around here that only flatlanders, tourists and democrats resize.


Well this is a fine pickle we're in, should'a listened to Joe McCarthy and George Orwell I guess.

Wheel weights or equivalent, 2100 FPS is as far as I’ve gone with them. They shoot about 1-1/4” at 50 for 5 shots with a 94 Trapper. No leading with ALOX lube and the can probably go 2200 FPS without a lot of fuss.

Got an e-mail from N.O.E today and have another mold coming.

This one is 130 grain gas check made for powder coating.

Sure hope the 7.62x39 likes it.
